Force of Destiny Endor Adventure Set

Managed to pick up the Princess Leia and Wicket Endor Adventure set over my lunch break at my local Target (Medina, MN). They had these in stockroom  as well as the Rey Extendable Staff (which I passed on). As a reminder, retail for the Endor Adventure set is $34.99 with DPCI 087-06-9292. I’ll get my girls to give their thoughts on this set later tonight.

(Sorry if this purchase triggers those (you know who you are) that can’t stand Hasbro marketing to kids or to parents looking to share their love of Star Wars with their progeny.)

Target Exclusive 6″ TBS Figure for The Last Jedi?

Upon revisiting our Target DPCI list we posted on July 2, one of the listings (087-06-8397) is now updated with a new coded description: “E8 BL Tango Black”. Since it is pretty specific and is reported as having a 10/1 release date and $19.99 price point, we suspect this may be an exclusive figure for The Last Jedi.

We shall see…. we shall see.*

Clearance Season at Target

Target has finally begun the process of clearancing out product that has been desperately staring back at you for nearly the past year.  While most of these are the “lower tiered” 5POA style toys that even the kids seem to have no interest in, you will also likely find items from TBS getting marked down significantly as well.

While it’s good to get out with the old, seeing what is on clearance, and more importantly, knowing what NEVER MADE IT to retail, is a chilling sign for just how bad the brand is being merchandised these days.  We can only hope that Hasbro has a much  better game plan for the upcoming two films and beyond and turns this frown upside down.

Head on over to the forums for some close up images of the items marked down at my local store in the STL area, as well as the markdowns (which are already significant)… and for a personal rant.

New Target DPCIs For Force Friday II and Beyond

Today we have some new Target DPCIs to share that tie to the Force Friday II launch and beyond. These codes are listed simply as “Star Wars” through Brickseek, but on Target’s internal systems, some are linked to The Black Series, but we can’t confirm which at this time.

As always, thanks to TargetGod for the intel.

UPDATE: Another 40th Anniversary Vader Legacy Pack Variant

Joining all of the wave 2 card variants for the 40th Anniversary Collection, the Darth Vader Legacy Pack box has also received the text adjustment for the age recommendation – switching to all UPPER CASE. Since Target has given up the ghost on carrying this set, you can continue to find steady shipments of these hitting Walmart.

UPDATE: This text change also extends to the Darth Vader cardback inside the box making for 3 distinct carded versions:

“Red Eyes” variant – lower case text
“Dark Eyes” variant – lower case text
“Dark Eyes” variant – UPPER CASE text

Star Wars Girl Power

Reports are coming in that some retailers, such as Target are receiving solid cases of the 6″ 40th Anniversary Princess Leia figure, such as the image above provided by forum member dubsack.  This also appears to be happening at some Toys”R”us stores.

Now, we’re not opposed to this great figure of our favorite princess being in good supply, but solid cases of anything in this scale at mass retail seems like it could cause problems, unless we’re talking Stormtroopers or Royal Guards (even that would be risky).

Thoughts?  Let us know what you think in the forums!
